The Index Manager allows you to customize the way a directory will be viewed on the web. You can select between a default style, no indexes, or two types of indexing. If you do not wish for people to be able to see the files in your directory, choose no indexing.


1 To access the Index Manager, click on the icon above the words Index Manager on the main screen of your cPanel interface.

2 Click on the name of the directory you wish to change the indexing options for (You can click on the picture next to its name to navigate to that directory).

3 Select the type of indexing you wish to use for that directory from the menu that appears, and click on Save.

NOTE: A message similar to the following will appear (except the directory will be the one you have chosen, and the index options will be the one you have chosen) :

The index settings on /home/user/public_html/images have been updated. Indexes are now Off .


Try setting the indexing back to the server default if you are having problems viewing directories or files.
